Importing SVGs remains a bit of a work-in-progress, with various
features not or poorly implemented. What Scribus version are you using?

I saved then imported your svg to Scribus 22.214.171.124, and saw the pistol
and printed it OK, but it was displaced all the way to the right.
Perhaps yours is completely outside the bounding box for the SVG, or
hiding behind one of the other frames.
The text cannot be seen because it's too big for the size of its frame.
Enlarging each frame will allow them to appear. If you can, it's
recommended that you insert text features in Scribus, rather than
putting them in the SVG -- you will get better results anyway. You will
need to Ungroup the SVG, in fact I had to ungroup multiple times to
eventually get them broken up.

Same as above - enlarge the frame.

Chances are you'll get there. You've just happened pick a weak spot in
Scribus as your starting point.
